Top scorers meet best defence in Brazil v Belgium clash

Top scorers meet best defence in Brazil v Belgium clash

When is the FIFA World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Belgium Quarter-Final match? They have been far from the most unbalanced side at this World Cup, but increasingly it appears their best chance of going all the way is by subscribing to the traditional Martinez playbook: we'll score one more than you.

Ahead of the match, Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku defended Neymar, with the Brazilian being accused of diving in Russian Federation. "If you ask me what is the greatest challenge of a World Cup?"

The turn of the tide seemed to coincide with Fellaini and Chadli coming on in the 65th minute, giving Belgium more of a physical edge than they had previously with Dries Mertens and Yannick Carrasco, as both substitutes found the net.

Marcelo is fit again for Brazil and could return in place of Filipe Luis at left back, while winger Douglas Costa is back from injury and will be on the bench. You have to prepare yourself, especially against the Brazil national team.

Be it a world-class goalkeeper, a host of solid defenders, immensely creative midfielders and a tormenting striker; the golden generation of Belgium has it all and to top it, Belgium has a quality back-up for every position. The main questions following disappointing defeats in the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 European Championship centred on the team's character. It has fueled confidence inside the Belgium camp that it can deal with adversity and make the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1986. "At the moment we're definitely not failing, but there's a level above, which we need to achieve", Kompany said.

England hasn't won the World Cup since 1966, but Rob Pizzo shows that the road ahead looks pretty favourable.

"I find it hard to play against Courtois, it is hard to find a weakness in him".

I don't think that will be a good idea against Brazil, but I am not sure what else Belgium manager Roberto Martinez will do.

"Everything is open, up for grabs", he said.

The victor of the tie will face either France or Uruguay in St Petersburg on July 10.

- Belgium's Romelu Lukaku has scored with four of his five shots on target so far at the World Cup.

Though Brazil has yet to hit the heights on the attacking front, it and Uruguay have been the meanest defences in the competition, conceding just one goal apiece in four matches.

If there is one glimmer of hope for Belgium, it might be the suspension of holding midfielder Casemiro, who picked up his second yellow card during the Mexico game. Neymar will have to be careful not to pick up another booking as he would miss a semifinal should Brazil prevail. The problem is that you are the guy, the idol of our country and unfortunately this is bothering a lot of people, I do not know why.
